I love you, but... by tazsaints I love you, but... by tazsaints
Relegated to scraps, as DA has fixed a majority of the problems (loading, auto-size and that f***ing "GIMMECOMMENTPLZ" still withstanding however) and given us DA Muro to make up for a lot of things.

I really do love you DA, but you truly push my levels of tolerance when you pull shit like this on us.

You'd better damn well hit 'MORE' and read this shit before commenting.

Now that the initial firey rage and hate for V7 has subsided, I feel I can safely submit my thoughts about it without being raged on for having an opinion.

- No, I won't quit DA over this.
- No, DA is not going to listen to any of us (let's face it, their heads are a bit too far up their asses to hear us anyway - I mean, did you see the V7 news article? Ugh.)
- The 'don't forget to comment' bullshit is only going to encourage more idiots to leave dumb comments, more so now that they nerf the artist comments to begin with! Not to mention seeing it just makes me rage and leave the art quicker.
- Nerfing the artists comments. Need I say more?

I could go on, but it'll turn into a ragefest of my own if I do. As a paying customer of DeviantArt Inc., is it really too much to ask for just an ounce of respect?

I don't mind the comment reminder thing. It is a bit annoying sometimes, but it's not so bad. It's just a comment, no biggie =]
Other than that, I liked this, especially the 'more' scroll tab. Nice how you showed it ^^

I don't like it either, and it's funny because V7 reminds me of windows, and this is sort of what it was like with windows vista. it tried to look slick and have a lot of new features, a very select few of which are okay (the deviation stacks I really liked, it let me sort out friends before 'watched casually') but the majority of which bombed entirely. a lot of people I knew stuck with XP, the operating system before it, which worked great. this is the same way. all we can hope is that if they update again it'll be as big of a rebound as windows 7 was.

Great work, you hit all the nails on the head there. What really bothers me the most is the comment. In my opinion, if people are going to read your comment, they will read it even it means clicking one more time. But why click one more time....that's one extra feature of annoyance DA achieved once again. Good job keep it up *u*.

I just wanted to say that the DA staff is listening to us.

$spyed even says in his journal, and I quote, "We're in the thick of it and working hard so keep screaming if it helps, we'll know it's all better when you calm down."

If this helps put things in perspective, this comic was uploaded before the follow-up V7 article.
Anyway, they listen, but they don't listen. They heard the shouting about the search bar, the message bar and so on, but a lot of things they did ignore completely. Not to mention that his follow-up article did basically say 'we've heard you, we'll fix some things, but for the most part, here's where to shove it.'
Not to be spiteful or anything, but it really is hard to keep believing everything these admins say when they've shown repeatedly that they really don't care as much as they pretend to. If V7 was so amazing, then why did we even have to scream in the first place?
They really should've beta tested far more extensively and actually listened to the same problems brought up then that have been brought up en masse now. Not to mention, a lack of warning really threw everyone for a loop, and that wasn't the best way to kick off a new version.

'You can't please everyone' seems to be the motto of this version, so for the meantime, I shall stay a disgruntled customer. :XD:

elomun Featured By Owner May 24, 2010
Ah, okay.

So, basicaly they hear us but do not act?
Yeah, it definatly needed more beta testing. And it really needed some warning time. So, yeah, it is kind of hard to believe them when you think about it.

lol, that's a perfect motto! XD

I only commented because your icon demanded me... it scares me... it HAUNTS ME!

No, I totally agree. I don't think I've EVER been pissed off at a layout change before. This time, ho-boy. I recently saw this awesome wallpaper of Batman forced to be resized in order fit the screen, DESPITE ME CLICKING ON FULL VIEW AND VIEWING IT ON A 2048x1152 SCREEN! Sorry 1920x1080 is too big to look at on an iPhone, but who the f*ck is going to be uploading art to dA FROM THEIR iPHONE?! We can't appreciate art from a long distance, unless the artist requests otherwise, so why would we view it on a smaller screen?

There are WAY too many unnecessary changes that unfortunately take away from the "experience." And, yes, the "COMMENT BEFORE FAVING" comment and "MORE" buttons are just plain stupid. It's just common courtesy to express to someone WHY you like something and offer praise and to listen to the artist when they have something to say. We shouldn't have to force the visitors to do either one! Both of these features DON'T help.

AND FURTHERMORE... your comic was hilarious. :)
